#12225 “Mistry” Guinea Pig, Black & Red, Abyssinian, Female, DOB 4/15/10

Mistry (aka Kibbles) was surrendered to MRR when the child in the home became allergic.  Since her arrival she has been living together with Tristine and they have become friendly with one another. However, they are not BFFs yet so if you want to adopt just Mistry, that would be fine. We prefer she not live alone so another female guinea pig at home would be required.

Mistry had a rough start in foster care and showed her unhappiness by biting her foster family. But, as time has gone b, Mistry has become acclimated to her new surroundings and no longer bites.

Here is what Mistry’s foster Mom has to say about her as of 8/1/12: Mistry is still really squirmy and will try to scratch to get away but has gotten a little better and my 11 yr old daughter can now hold her safely in a blanket without getting bit.  I cut her nails but she knows how to dig them into you. 🙁
She will be ok with older teen agers or adults.

11/24/12 Update from Foster Mom: Squeakalious, fun, cuddly! These two piggies fill up my writing room with chirps and the sounds of their thumping around their cage. I was away for a couple days this week and what a greeting I received when I came home! Seems I was definitely missed—these two pigs are great companions and warm my heart!

9/27/12 Update from foster Mom:
Mistry is the funnest pig. She is terribly curious and squeaks and coos until the cows come home. And she certainly knows what time dinner is! She loves to sit in my lap and just gaze into my eyes and is not bothered by the other nearby animals i.e. black Lab and cats. She really is a special pig.

Tristine is a bit shier than Mistry. She will take food from my hands now and is fine being held and sitting on my lap. She loves to romp around her cage like a bunny. Sometimes I even think she’s a bunny.

The two of these pigs are a lot of fun to have around!
